Welcome to Melbourne!

Get settled at your hotel; we’re sure you’ve had a long day of traveling. Grand Slam and hotel staff will be close by to help with any requests you might have.

In the evening, fight off jet lag by joining the Grand Slam team, your fellow travelers, and a special tennis guest as we enjoy dinner, chat tennis, and discuss the details of your time down under.

Learn why they call it the Happy Slam

Over the upcoming days, get ready to immerse yourself in the excitement of tennis at Melbourne Park. While your reserved seats at Rod Laver Arena promise an incredible view, don't forget about the thrill of exploring the outer courts on a first-come, first-served basis. Beyond the tennis action, the grounds are bustling with activity, featuring a concert series, a vibrant kids zone, ample shopping opportunities, the enticing Grand Slam Oval with its array of food and drink options, and a delightful family fun park that's not to be overlooked. There's something for everyone to enjoy beyond the courts!

Explore Melbourne and play tennis on grass at Kooyong

Meet your private Melbourne city guide in the morning and embark on a half-day tour of Melbourne. With classic Aussie humor, you will get to know the history of the city, its landmarks and alleyways, and stop for a lovely stroll and lunch in the Royal Botanic Gardens, perched next to the center of the city. The city tour concludes at the iconic Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, where you will traverse the famed grounds and get out on the grass for a hit with our GSTT tennis pros. After a runaround on the grass, we’ll enjoy a dinner in the Kooyong dining room (be sure to take a sip of the Kooyong Crush) before heading back to the Langham. All in all, a great day!

Days off and planned excursions

Add an extra day or five for some time to shop the Melbourne boutiques or explore the rich territory of Victoria. If you’d like, we can also arrange a multi-day excursion to another part of Australia for you. You might choose a sunrise hot air balloon flight and wine tasting tour of the Yarra Valley, a trip to Kangaroo Island, a journey to New Zealand, or a visit to the Great Barrier Reef. These and other options are all available to you—so make the most of that long flight down under!

Time to head home

As your stay comes to an end, it's time to check out and begin your journey home or to your next destination. If you have a bit of time to spare, consider taking a leisurely stroll along the picturesque Yarra River before your flight, or perhaps explore another nearby attraction in the city.
